The Botanique has become a cultural Centre since 1984. Formally, it was a Botanique garden, with gorgious greenhouses. Nowadays, it still show its wonderful architecture, together with up-to-date concert venues (Orangerie, Rotonde, Witloof Bar ...). Discover our many concerts over the year through our website or visit our galery called Museum, with its 4 or 5 big exhibitions a year (photography, paintings, ...).

The "gardens" were unkempt and uncared for when we visited. There was a fine selection of men sleeping in various corners of the park and the small lake was pretty grubby, I've no idea how the terrapins survive. The formal areas may have been tended sometime this year. The main buildings are shabby up close but look fine from a... More

Well, this Botanical Garden is beautiful. Worth to see it if you are visiting in the Spring, or you are into old trees, or you just need a quiet place to sit and not to be bothered. But if you are not that into these, you might have skip visiting this place. It is important that there is no entrance... More

I had a really great experience here watching Jamie T. It was intimate and different. Beer was good, and it was lovely sitting outside afterwards soaking in the beautiful garden. Lone women, be careful of strange men around this area at night.

A great place to hear a concert or go for a dance. Don't miss it!!!! The terrace is lovely, the salles de concert quite unique. They even have a library that is just great. Go and have fun!

The building is nice and the gardens pretty enough. I only saw part of the inside and there were very little plant variety in the parts I saw. The building is beautiful but it was a Sunday afternoon and all the kids screaming inside and out did not make the experience very peaceful. It was one a disappointment for me.

My daughters and I walked through these gardens on our way from our hotel to the Grand Place. Brussels is a vibrant and busy city and it was so calming and uplifting to find this lovely tranquil space. I hope to visit Brussels again someday soon, and would definitely want to come back to see Le Botanique again.

A real space of peace in this crazy city. Next to Place Rogier, it is huge, well kept and at all times of the year just a haven of peace, Buy you lunch/sandwich and just sit and contemplate. Next to the pond, you wil have competition from the ducks. Marvelous.
